Space nerd Stanley Tweedle and the motley crew of the simpleton living ship Lexx continue to wander around a video-game galaxy as the universe is devoured around them by the voracious Mantrid and his army of disembodied arms. They fight off the hungry undead corpses (who look suspiciously like the zombie Templars of Tombs of the Blind Dead) in "Twilight," take a trip through Stanley's guilt-riddled dreams in "Patches in the Sky," meet the not-so-wonderful Wuzzard when they attempt to reset Xev's expiration date in "Woz," and slam into an interstellar net spun by a monstrous mind-controlling spider in "The Web." Behind the farcical black humor and morbid running gags (does Stanley have to blow up every planet he sees?) is an increasingly melancholy edge as the universe disappears around the crew and Stanley faces up to his cowardice and irresponsibility. For Lexx, that's almost deep. --Sean Axmaker

i'm definately a big lexx fan, but i didnt get hooked on the show until the third season and therefore had not seen the majority of the second season episodes. So lucky day for me i've been seeing them for the first time on this series of dvds. the episodes really start heating up and getting good here on volume 4. everything about the show from the writing to xenia seeberg's performance as eva haberman's replacement for zev/xev has gone up about 10 notches. the special features on this disc were about 80% as good as ones on the other discs, but the real bonus is having these fantastic episodes for your collection. if you are a lexx fan you should already own this! if you've never seen lexx before then you should start it right and get the original 4 movies ("i worship his shadow" "supernova" "eating pattern" and "giga shadow"). As already mentioned they are only available in canada (on dvd... you can buy the VHS version here on amazon under the original title "tales from a parallel universe") but i got the dvds easily enough on ebay. so there you have it. LEXX IS GOOD!

4.5 stars. After stumbling a little on the last volume, volume 4 finds The Lexx in full flight. And except for the final episode, the humor and excellent satire has returned. Here are the episodes:
2.13 Twilight--Stanley falls ill and via a little coaxing from Xev the Lexx travels to a planet with a handful of people promising a cure in exchange for a hitched ride. The living inhabitants hate each other, but in a humorous way, and the dead rise and crave living flesh due to the strange radiation emitted from the planet. This radiation has an odd effect on Kai, who is already dead, and he prances about spouting poetry in a very campy way. Xev is bitten by one of the zombies and looks sick, so Stanley asks if she is alright. She replies, "I can smell your brains!" This is a fine parody of the popular Horror sub-genre; and the character standby, Lyekka, makes a very sexy appearance as well. Kudos to her costume designer! Yowza!
2.14 Patches in the Sky--The Lexx goes psychedelic! Stanley bullies a robot leader from a robot mining colony into providing him with some form of entertainment or he will command the Lexx to destroy its planet. The robot leader suggests he try the Narcolounger, a device in which he can manipulate his dreams. Given Stanley's recent history of sleep deprivation and nightmares this Narcolounger sounds like Heaven. But the reality is uncontrolled, nightmarish insanity! There are also blank patches appearing in the sky assumed to be areas destroyed by Mantrid drones. This is macabre and trippy stuff!
2.15 Woz--This is one of the funniest episodes thus far in the series! This is a grand parody of "The Wizard of Oz." Xev is told by 790 that she, being a manufactured Love Slave, was given an expiration date and will die soon.
